Rare Coins - Two and Three Cents

Two and Three Cents, the odd denominations

The Two Cent piece was first authorized by the Us Congress in 1864 and other than it was the first time that the “In God we Trust” Motto appear on our coins, it was not very accepted and became one of the shortest minted series of United States coins. The Three Cent pieces were made between 1851 and 1889 in both silver and nickel.
